Yeah Thad,

I'll agree with you for that... I'll take one whole week to assemble my Pro 4..... and at the same time paint new bodyshell.. this time with airbrush...

Just got to wait for it to arrive... my LHS said it would arrive somewhere in 20something in Dec. I'll probably get mine in Jan 04 since I'm going for a long holiday....

Happy Racing....

For those who have there kits already..

HPI cafe release:

Yesterday, as for Pro4 which was shipped you think that quickly already it has lined up into the store. Then, you try to introduce little secret when the assembling Pro4 to everyone.

Please prepare the tap of M3.
Pro4 has used the carbon mixture resin for the various parts. As for this carbon mixture resin there is a feature which rigidity calls high and light weight very. Because of that it is very hard the occasion where the screw is screwed in, operating efficiency becomes bad. Very it becomes easy to work by the fact that the tap of M3 is cut beforehand then. The point is not to cut the length all tap of the screw here. The length which cuts the tap when it makes 2/3 of length of the screw, screwing in the screw, becomes lastly hard and becomes also locking.

Pivot as for installation of mount prudently.
With Pro4 the suspension shaft is locked at pivot block the chassis. The occasion where this pivot block is installed in the chassis, paying attention to the movement of the suspension arm, please install. When the screw stopping pivot block securely, please verify that the left and right both suspension arm moves smoothly. When the suspension arm of one side does not move smoothly, pivot block has been installed slantedly. Loosening the screw of one time pivot block slightly, in order for pivot block not to tilt on left and right, while locking securely by the hand, it tightens the screw and densely is please be. If and it reaches the point where both suspension arm left and right moves smoothly, it is OK. As for this part when travelling when big crash is done even, please try checking.

The present place is to here.
As for the next time, it is the schedule which introduces Tips of method of assembling the gear box.

Everyone, without being hasty, don't you think? please assemble and read the instruction manual well and assemble.

When they're talking about their "graphite" parts, they should be calling them, and I've seen this used by manufacturers, "graphite impregnated plastic" which is exactly what it is. The parts that you're talking about on the pro 4 should be called "carbon Fiber." I think those descriptions are the more accurate way to describe them.

Kind of similar to some of the fiberglass piping systems we sell. The correct name for them is FRP (fiber reinforced plastics)
